I would be very interested in a carpool or bus service
i come from south Charlotte i take an Express bus up 77 to Davidson collage and walk 2.7 miles from there to PLP. so a bus or carpool that would pick me up at Davidson would be incredible helpful
I just got in this site and saw your post. I know it's from last year, but do you still need a ride? Please let me know.

<quoted text>Pfft! You must not have any friends with children who are enrolled at PLP. The traffic is not the problem, so get over YOURSELF! It's the fact that administration promised us little things like books and quality teachers that act like they want to be there not like they're in prison, and most of all happy children(which is not what the faces of the children in the halls look like)!Your child does not need to be at PLP to grow academically, they can get a great education anywhere if they apply themselves. There are QUALITY teachers in both the Iredell and Mooresville Graded school systems. You obviously are the one with the problem...Shame on you for not doing the research to find that out...Selfish Parent! BTW if you still want a spot for your child, they can have my sons, we're getting him the heck out as soon as the school year is
over...See ya!
Could you please share why you don't want your child at PLP anymore? I kind of feel the same way. I'm thinking in pulling my son out of PLP.

Mrs Dunnaway has REALLY out down herself this time. Every high school has a senior prank, it should just be expected. When the seniors at PLP do something they get hung out to dry. What did they do? Wrote a harmless message on the school windows with shaving cream & stuck forks in the ground. OHMYJESUS SO TERRIBLE RIGHT THERE. I think we all know schools which have had worse. SO what's the punishment for the kids who did the prank? Not only do they have to wait a month to fully graduate and get their diploma but Mrs. Dunnaway herself is writing a letter personally to the headmaster of every college the students are going to. SO now they will be on the watch list for all of their colleges and could even lose their scholarships. That woman is CRAZY.
PLUS Grades are not being updated on edline. Its been 4 weeks and no one can even see their end of the year exam grades. Real freaking convenient Pine Lake.

I have heard that Lake Norman Limo, and Knox Transportation have a service going to the Brawly School Rd area, but not toward Davdison/Cornelius.. You might want to try those resources.
I have talked to Lake Norman Limo. I can't find a number for Knox Transportation. Does anyone have the number????

I recently attended a PLP board meeting. I was floored at the way Kate Alice Dunaway treated other board members when they asked reasonable questions of her. At one point, I wanted to disappear under my chair because it was so uncomfortable. If all parents went to one board meeting they would want to get rid of her. A lot of people compare her to the head of Community School of Davidson, Joy. Joy is at all sports events and is hugging parents and talking with anyone that approaches her. On the other hand, Kate Alice has been at one football game and no other sporting events. You do not dare approach her and talk. She may have done a good job getting Pine Lake started, but it is time to move on.
Every major committee was hand picked by her so she can use them like puppets. It is unfortunate, because the school has so many talented families.
Apparently, she was fired from American Renaissance Charter School because of a movement started by parents. I would love to know all of the details.
It is time to bring in someone to take us to the next level.

Wow....that is all I can say about the message above. I agree you cannot compare the leaders of these two is because of the success of the community school of Davidson that so many folks even enter the PLP lottery. But just like everthing else, every charter school is different as well as the leadership. Joy Warner has a heart of gold and it is all about the children...not the image...jsut real genuine care and concern for children.

I have to say that Mrs. Dunaway is very approachable. My husband and I have spoken to her in length and both agreed that she was very kind, genuine, interested and appreciative for us taking the time to speak to her. The person who stated above that Mrs. Dunaway is not approachable is very wrong. The teachers very much seem to enjoy their positions at PLP. My son was in a wonderful class where the children offered nothing but smiles. Maybe the parent above should volunteer more in the classroom to appreciate the quality of education offered, the strong commitment made by teachers and see the enthusiasm, the cooperation and the willingness of children to help one another. It's amazing!

I have been watching this thread with some interest over the past several months. Two hours ago, Kate Alice announced her resignation to the APs via email. Say what you will about the woman (and there's plenty to be said), she was always an advocate for teacher pay. Here's to hoping that the devil we know is worse than the one we don't.

What a coward! She is finally given a job description and is held accountable and she bolts! The way she and Sevic reacted last night when told that the AP's would finally have a voice was embarrassing. Why wouldn't you want the AP's to share their concerns? When she left American Renaissance School, they found that the teachers she liked were paid much more than the others. In fact, some teachers were not even paid minimum. We were told by American Renaissance that when she left PLP we would find all kinds of things that were not ethical. I guess that time is now.

Are you serious? Many of the students didn't like her??? What does that have to do with anything? The students had very little or any contact with her as she was always WORKING to help provide your child with an amazing learning facility. The truth is she was NOT fired; she chose not to renew her contract and I don't blame her one bit. As much as this woman has done for our children and our community and to be treated and spoken to the way she was is ridiculous. We lost an amazing leader. I wish her nothing but the best as she begins a new chapter in her life. She will be missed.
